ntsb managing director has been following this story with us since the start and he is back now with this latest development. peter, i want to you to put your ntsb hat back on for a second here. if you find out that they knew that they had 10 batteries that had problems, that japanese airline told them they had to replace 10 batteries did they do something wrong by not disclosing it or by not addressing the problem right there? >> well here's the issue. it is not just 10 batteries. that is 10 batteries from one of the airlines the second airline using the japanese airline, using the dreamliner also had problems. they were not required to turn these events over to the regulator in japan or in the u.s. we have pages of regulations. this was seen as kind of a minor or normal maintenance issue. the real question is, both airliners reported their problems to boeing. they said we had to change out, in one case 10 batteries. in another case we don't know how many. the question is, whether boeing was connecting the dots. whether they saw that there was a problem brewing with these batte

to get to it on boeing. phil, over to you. >> we've heard from the ntsb, expecting an update from them. they have at least an initial report regarding the fire investigation of that 77 dreamliner in boston yesterday. the ntsb saying that they have decided they are going to send two more investigators to look at the dreamliner in question and that at least initially taking a look at the fire in question they found severe fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners

hersman is chairman of the ntsb. >> we have learned from accidents, we have plowed all of those lessons back in. they have been embraced in many cases, and we're not seeing repeats of those same accidents. >> reporter: but experts say two actions in which human failure was at least partly to blame. underscore that, remains the biggest threat to safety. air france 447 crashed into the atlantic in 2009, killing 228. that same year, regional airline, flight 3407, crashed in buffalo, killing 50. >> colgan air was a watershed event in aviation safety, in particular bringing the regional carriers up to standards with the major carriers. >> reporter: the safety culture is spreading, accident rates are dropping, in russia, africa, latin america. the caribbean and asia. despite the improvement in safety, experts say there is a real danger here. just when you start to think it can't happen again is very often when you're most vulnerable. tom costello, nbc news, washington. >> when we continue on this new year's eve, two men who have learned some hard lessons, now passing them on and making a diff

't know right now. so i know they're saying that. but we have the faa all over the airplane, the ntsb all over the airplane. i think the risk for the -- i see two camps on this stock. you have the teethers, those who believe everything is a teether problem, and the tip of the icebergers saying could this be something else. i think with this investigation going on and the faa already actively on the airplane, it will be difficult to take event, especially if it's a severe event, and say, this is fine, this is fine. long term they're going to sort it out. i agree with what jim cramer said, i'm in the same camp that said, why not do a derivative play on this story, if you have more risk maybe someone like spirit aero systems. >> at what point do you say this is the point of fear of investors are running? that's the time to get in the stock. we've seen that in different scenarios, that we don't know what we don't know, as you said. that is exactly the time you wanted to go in. what's going to make that turning point for you, do you think? >> well, i have to say, because there's a formal inves
. new details just into fox news from the ntsb and this investigation into issues with one of the largest commercial planes you will find anywhere. the focus on the battery maker used in boeing's dreamliner jets. this is big story. we've been watching it for some time. now we have a little bit more direction as how safe it is on board. we're back from washington, d.c. he is sconced back in our home in new york. martha: good morning. good to be back. good morning. i'm martha maccallum. that is not the way you want to leave a plane necessarily. so a burning battery is what forced the emergency evacuation in japan of everybody on board and led to the frownedding of the airliner jets around the world. here is what the burned out battery looks like. bill: don't want one of those either. dan springer at boeing's headquarters. what more can you tell us about the investigation there? >> reporter: investigators with the national transportation safety board are expected to be in tucson, arizona for tests on the battery charger that had the fire at boston logan's airport. the ntsb rel
in the news, a lot of people saying are there others out there. the ntsb yesterday gave an update in terms of where the investigation stands, including showing the media what's going on in the ntsb lab, seeing the charred batteries from the 787 dreamliner that was the one that had to be put out in boston. well, now they still say they do not know the exact cause of the batteries catching fire. as for those batteries and one other component, the charger, the charger for the batteries built by a company called secureaplane, a plant out in tucson, arizona. back in 2006, there was a fire involving lithium ion batteries for the 787 at the secureaplane plant. a worker there warned the company about the batteries and the chargers and the possibility of fires. >> these lithium ion batteries, too much heat and they'll explode. it will be a nightmare. >> michael leon was dismissed from the company for repeated problems on the job. secureaplane told me yesterday the battery charger for the dreamliner was successfully tested. there was a fire in the facility in 2006 during one test. however, the curre

batteries overheated. so far the investigation hasn't turned up a solid reason for the problem. the ntsb is digging deeper with the heft military. electrical parts are now being tested at the naval surface lab in notre dame. it hasn't hurt boeing's bottom line yet. fourth quarter earning inks are close to a billion dollars beating estimates on wall street and they have more than $13 billion in cash on hand so they are in a good position to weather the storm. jon. jon: dan springer in seattle, thank you. we are watching the dow right now the blue chips flirting with the 14,000 mark for the first time in more than five years. take a look there, 13945 right now, down a few minutes from yesterday's close. the good news for wall street comes amid disappointing economic news. the u.s. economy slowing signs of slowing down. the government says the economy sharply contracted in the fourth quarter of 2012 growing at only one tent of tenth. they say it is heading to greece on steroids. what is about this last quarter, steve, what caused the shrinkage. >> wall street is doing great, main street is
of tucson today conduct a test on the battery chargers. over the weekend, the ntsb released a statement saying the battery had not been overcharged. when you look at the picture of it, you can tell clearly that it was overheated. investigators will be there doing a number of tests to see if it was working properly. remember, in our boston fire, it was the backup battery that overheated and started a fire. the battery that overheated was near the front of the plane on a japanese flight. dagen: dan, it also seems that japanese and u.s. authorities have a different task when it comes to investigating these problems. they are going in different direction so they can cover all of the bases. they were made in japan by a company. a boeing source tells me the serial numbers of the two batteries that overheated are close together. that initial thought was it was a bad batch of batteries. that would be a good thing. that now appears less likely. investigators have not found any anonymously's. the investigation is focusing on the entire electrical system and how those lithium batteries factor in.
in what we understand. the ntsb and boeing, a technical team from boeing, they're investigating the fire on the dreamliner. it was found in a compartment with batteries, and electrical components. it's not entirely clear at this point exactly what caused the fire. it is believed that it might have been caused by one of the lithium batteries on the dreamliner. that is an issue, because the dreamliner uses lithium im batteries to power onboard electronics. way back in 2007 the faa issued special rules for the use of lithium im batteries because of the concern of flammability risk involving those batteries. this is the fourth dreamliner incident involving its electronics, or losing power, since december 4th. look at this timeline. back on november 4th, united took its first domestic 787 flight, at the time there had been no reports. a month later, a united flight going to niewark to houston, experienced mechanical problems, reporting a loss of power. cutter airways a few days later had to ground one of its 787 jets for what it said was a faulty generator. the 14th of december, united ground
's going to make a lot of people nervous. the ntsb is now investigating the 787 on the tarmac at logan airport yesterday morning, catching fire, after the plane had landed. the crew and the passengers had all deported. the fire was found in a compartment with batteries and electrical components. and again the passengers and crew were not on board during the fire. but this is the fourth incident since november or since december 4th where we've had a problem with the dreamliner. now remember united had its first domestic 787 flight back on november 4th. just a month later united had a flight from houston to newark, it made an emergency landing in new orleans. after experiencing mechanical problems, a loss of power. qatar air on december 9th said it grounded one of its 737 -- or 787s because of a faulty generator. similar problem, loss of power in flight. and then on december 14th, united grounds two of its four dreamliners due to problems with an electrical panel and then finally, yesterday you have the emergency crews responding to a 787 fire at logan airport. now the dreamliner, and th
ago, i had a chance to speak with robert sumwallet, heading up the ntsb investigation. he says today they're going to talk to the captain and the crew. he says there are no time line for when they might find out what exactly caused this crash. he said it could take up to 12 months, guys. >> steve: all right. todd starnes who lives in that neighborhood with a live report down at the water. thank you. >> brian: 25 minutes before the top of the hour. >> ainsley: now some of your headlines. he was poisoned to death with cyanide. now brand-new court documents are revealing the widow of that million dollars lottery winner was in a fight with his family about money. after he died, his wife tried cashing his lottery check, but his brother froze that check. he was worried that his daughter from a previous marriage wouldn't get her fair share. >> the wife and him was alone. they have a two story house. she was upstairs with him. nobody else was there. there was no other family member there. >> jasmine was not there? >> jasmine was down stairs. her room is down stairs and she was sleeping. >> a
said, the fire at logan is a unique example and the ntsb is investigating but i think trying to connect this event to other events is pure speculation at this point. we don't have a lot of data. >> have you seen any sign that production might be interrupted, slowed down if, in fact, they have to address the things along the production line? >> none whatsoever. >> because as the journal points out today, you get paid upon delivery and worst-case scenario would begin to avoid cash flow if they were delayed. >> yeah. look, the central bull thesis for boeing shares is about the large amount of cash the company will generate over three or four rates and with the 787 ramping up to very high levels to meet customer demand. if we were to call in to question that cash flow, that weighs against the bull thesis. we don't have any data to suggest that will happen. the planes are still flying and i would say these sorts of teething problems are normal for new planes. we have them on the a-380 and we have to wait and see and we need more data and not calling in to question the long-term fundamentals.
